Dr. Hartwell has received numerous awards and honors in the course of his career. Among them he received the Brandeis university Rosenteil Award in 1993, and the sloan-kettering Cancer Center Katherine Berkan Judd Award as well as the Genetics Society of America Medal in 1994. In 1995 he was awarded the MGH Warren Triennial Price and in 1996 was awarded the Columbia University Horwitz Award and the Passano Award. Dr. Hartwell received the Albert Lasker Award for medical research in 1998.

Dr. Hood received an MD from the Johns Hopkins Medical Schooland a PhD in Biochemistry from the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include immunology, development and the development of biological instrumentation (e.g. the protein sequenator and the automated fluorescent DNA sequencer). His research played a key role in unraveling the mysteries of anitbody diversity. Dr. Hood has taught molecular evolution, immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry. he is currently the Chairman (and founder) of the cross-disciplinary Department of Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Washington. Dr. Hood has received a variety of awards including the Albert Lasker Award for Medical Research (1987), Dickson Price (1987), Cefas Award for Biochemistry (1989), and the Distinguished Service Award from the national Association of Teachers (1998). He is deeply involved in K-12 science educatiohn. His hobbies include running, mountain climbing, and reading.

Dr. Goldberg is a professor at Cornell University where he teaches introductory Genetics. He was an undergraduate at Yale University, and received his PhD in Biochemistry from Stanford University. Dr. Goldberg performed postdoctoral research at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (Switzerland), posdoctoral research at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel and at Harvard University, and received an NIH Fogarty Senior International Fellowship for study at Imperial College (England) and at the University fo Rome (Italy). His current research utilizes the tools of Drosophila genetics to investigate the mechansims that ensure proper chromosome segregation during mitosis and meiosis.

Dr. Reynolds is an educator and author who has been teaching genetics and biology since 1990. An affiliate faculty member of the Genetics Department at the University of Washington, her research has included studies of gene regulation in E. coli, chromosome structure and DNA replication in yeast, and chloroplast gene expression in marien algae. She is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College and received her PhD from Tufts University. Dr. Reynolds was a post doctoral research fellow witht he Harvard University Department of Molecular Biology. Dr. Reynolds was also an author and producer of the laserdisc and CD-ROM Genetics: Fundamentals to Frontiers.

Dr. Silver is a Professor at Princeton University in the Departments of Molecualr Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the program in Neuroscience. Dr. silver graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with BA and MS degrees in physics, and from Harvard University with a PhD in biophysics. He was a research fellow at the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research and a seniro scientist at Cold Harbor Lab before coming to Princeton. He is the author of "Remaking Eden: Cloning and Beyond in a Brave New World." He is also the co-editor-in-chief of a new international journal entitled "Clining: Science and Policy," and co-editor-in-chief of "Mammalian Genome," the official journal of the International Mammalian Genome society. In 1993, Dr. Silver was elected a Fellow fo the AAAS.

Ruth Veres is a science writer and editor with 25 years of experience in textbook publishing. She obtained her BA from Swarthmore college and MA degrees from Columbia University in NY and Tufts University. In addition to developing and editing more than 30 texts in the fields of political science, economics, psychology, nutrition, chemistry, and biology, she has co-authored a book on the immune system and an introductory biology text. She has also taught writing and languages at the Univ of California at Berkeley. She lives in San Francisco with her husband.

This text was used in a class that I TAed. Many of the students found the text too detailed and confusing and so they relied mostly on the professor's notes. The text is overly wordy as it describes genetics in detail from a problem solving point of view. There are many problems at the end of each chapter ranging from simple to extremely difficult.
The CD is just plain silly. It tries to be interactive, but the activities are either too easy like the chromosome matching activity that makes `incorrect' noises until you match the correct pair (and really what do you learn from that anyway) or just non-intuitive. I remember playing with one section about genetic markers, and I gave up frustrated with trying to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. Interactive Fly lab is much more useful than this CD. You won't be missing anything if you get a used copy without the CD.
From a graduate student perspective, Part IV of this text: Portraits of Model Eukaryotic Organisms is extremely useful. There is a chapter on each of the most commonly used model organisms: yeast, plant, worm, fly, and mouse that explain a brief history of the use of the organism, how genetics is done in that organism, and what is most useful to study in the organism. When I first started graduate school I found myself reading papers and getting lectures about specific model systems that I had never worked with before and these chapters brought me up to speed quickly.

This textbook was helpful and easy to read. It is a nice introductory textbook into genetics for an individual who has yet to take molecular biology or biochemistry. It seems to be just the right length as well; however, it is rather pricy for its thickness. The major issues that I had with this textbook were that there were several errors throughout the text and even more in many of the figures. The figures were wonderful unless you tried thinking about them, at which point, several errors were discovered. For an introductory genetics student, mistakes in figures can be a large problem simply because students often rely on figures to explain new information. I know that their next edition, the 2nd edition, which is now out, will only be better & I look forward to reading it! :)

I used this text as an undergraduate three years ago. It provided me with a wonderful insight into genetics genomics and introductory molecular biology. The books is highly readable with wonderful diagrams and a marvelous set of probelsm following each chapter. Also note one of the authors Dr. Hartwell is a nobel laureate. I believe a new edition is on the way but I find myself unwilling to part with my favorite genetics book even as a graduate student. The price of the new edition would be especially high like when I bought the 1st edition. I suggest the low budget readers like me to buy used copies of the 1st edition because the prices are dropping fast on used copies. Highly recommended for undergraduates of all levels and as an introductory text for a graduate level genomics course.
